No, I haven't.  I'll have to look for it.

Thanks for mentioning it.  I'll have to add it. Do you know the 
publisher and date of publication?  Most of the ones I put on 
the list were those that are currently available from ATC - though 
I did put some others as well.  I'm pretty sure I included that 
big, old 2 volume set - put out around '78 by Rodale Press if I recall 
correctly - called the _Hiking the A. T._ - or something similar. For anyone 
interested, I happened to see it for sale in a used book store last 
evening in Chambersburg, PA for $29.50 for the set. (717) 261-0541.  I 
think they also had that old National Geo. book on the AT - not the one 
that came out just a few years ago - but back 20 or more years ago.  I 
should have had a look and checked the price - but was in a hurry...
